The Texas Educational Agency released its 2017 Accountability Ratings, and the top-rated elementary in East Dallas may be a surprise.

Dan D. Rogers Elementary earned the most distinctions, six out of six, of any school in our neighborhood. The Advocate wrote about Rogers’ Principal of the Year Lisa Lovato, who brought in Personalized Learning and grew neighborhood support of the school. Rogers also received all six distinctions last year.

As a district, Dallas ISD did not receive any distinctions, though there were 30 schools that earned all distinctions, after only 17 earned all distinctions last year. One of the schools missing from the list was Woodrow Wilson High School, which earned all seven last year but dropped to six this year.

The ratings are based on standardized test scores and graduation rates, and look at student achievement, student progress, closing the achievement gap and readiness for the next level of education.
